The music is a mix between material generated in SuperCollider, concrete sounds and commercial software. Visuals are all generated through Processing, a java-based language. Most of the graphics are generated on the fly, allowing for randomness as well as exact control, sync and responsiveness with the audio.
While open for interpretation, the piece is about submission under social power structures in society – such as capitalism, conformity and religion.
The piece was performed at Reaktorhallen R1, KTH. The space used to house Sweden’s first nuclear reactor and was used for research purposes. This was well over 40 years ago and all that remain is a large, empty and eerie dilapidated hall 30+ meters below Stockholm’s soil.
